MY VALENTINE ~ My Sweet Valentine

Updated on February 18, 2016


I want to give you all your dreams

And wrap them with a bow

But for now, it doesn’t seem

That ‘s the way to go

For a moment, I was sad

I could not give you things

A card, some chocolate, power tool

Or perhaps some BLING (LOL)

We got the kids some valentines

And hid them all around

Amazing all the joy that comes

From cards that we have found

No matter what the age they are

They always seem to see

The magic in,

A Valentine signed from you and me

We had no extras at this time

But this just did not matter

We knew the joy that these would bring

When home they found them scattered

I pulled up to your place of work

And quickly you jumped in

You signed each little valentine

Your smile was the win!

You started this tradition

When they were very small

And every year they look around

To see where they would fall

So long ago God gave me you

And was not sure why

It must have been because he knew

That you could be the guy

The one so very opposite

Of everything I am

That given time with every jump

Would make me think we can

When you came

I was in awe

As things were all brand new

I hadn’t shown my super flaw's

Before we said I DO

When you asked

Please Marry Me

My mask was on so tight

The way that you would look at me

I knew I was alright

As time passed by

So many years

You pulled that mask away

Perhaps not always liking me

And yet you always stayed

We have the gift of love is blind

And mostly see the good

But at times, we see the bad

As we really should

In marriage or relationship

There is no perfect pair

Only when we want to work

Can we make it fair

Every time that favor came

A trial surely followed

But our love grew so strong and firm

So we would rarely wallow

The little things in life have been

The filler for the cracks

For every couple has to work

To keep marriage on the tracks

Now we have played some bumper cars

Road some coasters along the way

But we looked to The Word Of GOD

And that always made us say

I am blessed to have you

In my life today

For yesterday and always


Love is not about the stuff

That I could give to you

But all about the compromise

That always sees us through

Together we have loved so much

And Blessings we have shared

God gave me all my dreams for sure

Even through the snares

When difficulty comes to love

It shakes you to the core

It makes the greatest loves of all

Be tested more and more

Most days we try to get it right

But often we do stumble

It takes some prayer and quietness

To finally makes us humble

I want to give you all your dreams

And wrap them in a bow

But for now, I have some work

As I’m sure you know

This trial that is in our midst

Can’t break what we have had

But it can shake us up and down

And really make us mad

I realize we do not choose

The cards that we are dealt

But even when they’re difficult

The love is always felt

The sadness comes

When darts are flying

Out of our control

I would take one to the heart

If the truth is told

Because you mean so much to me

And one day I am sure

All the struggle of this life

Will be behind a door

This door will be so welcoming

And on the other side

Will be the outstretched arms

From which we’ll never hide

And in this place where we will meet

Together or apart

We can love forever

And there will be NO DARTS

For everything that we go through

Within the days ahead

Will only make us realize

The Cross is where we're fed

And when we meet Him

Face to face

and look into His eyes

He will shine a loving light

One that never dies


Come What May

      I loved this totally honest poem of true love; we have to ride the bad as well as the good times and when we last through thick and thin this is when we know we have true love.

      I love this one and I can also relate;I was married to an

      abusive alcoholic for 26 years ;but found the courage to leave then met my present partner who is my soul mate for the past six years. We have been through thick and thin and come out the other side stronger.This is true love;thank you so much for sharing this gem;it made me re-remember how fortunate I now am.

      I now look forward to reading many more from you and I am glad you came across me on here.

      Take care and enjoy your day.

      Hush no telling my secrets :) writing is very cathartic when in a little storm or tsunami LOL ~ I am lucky to have the man I do but it is tough when the storm sends hail we both need to shelter each other ~ When the storm is hurting people you love it is hard, but if God brings you to it He brings you through it:)
